Development Manager

Washington Area Women’s Foundation is a community-supported foundation that invests in the power of women and girls of color across the Washington, DC metropolitan region.

Women and girls of color make change happen. While too often unsung, the work of women and girls of color have advanced human rights and gender, racial, and economic justice in our communities for decades. The Women’s Foundation believes that by increasing resources to, and recognizing the leadership of, women and girls of color, they will ignite needed change.

To advance our mission and theory of change, we are:

  • Grant makers - We make grants to organizations that are actively pursuing gender, racial, and economic justice, and we award women and girls of color directly.
  • Advocates - We center the voices and lived experiences of women and girls of color to influence policymakers and the local philanthropic sector to advance systems and institutional change with a gender, racial, and economic justice lens.


The Development Manager is responsible for stewarding and expanding The Foundation’s annual fund and maintaining and improving development operations. Reporting to the Director of Development, the Manager will work closely with other development, program, and leadership staff to develop and execute plans, set goals, and implement the annual development plan strategies intended to grow donor retention, increase fundraising revenue, and diversify revenue sources through a variety of cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship activities. This position will be part of a new development department of two other team members with plans to expand to six in a few years. The team will drive a significant increase in funding to include more unrestricted giving through the solicitation of individual major gifts, special events, and corporate and foundation support.
